IDSA Center for Global Health Policy Releases Report from Mozambique
Staff of the IDSA Center for Global Health Policy carried out the Center’s fifth congressional study tour last August, bringing three United States Senate staff members to Mozambique to examine the continuing impacts of HIV and tuberculosis epidemics there, and to witness effective responses to those diseases. 
 
The group visited US-funded programs supporting research, treatment, prevention and health system strengthening. They witnessed how a country with multiple health and resource challenges is making strides through collaborative efforts including in programs supported by Friends in Global Health and ICAP at Columbia University.
 
The Global Center documented findings from the tour in its latest report: Right Now – Observations on an HIV treatment pivot, released in January. It describes:
  • Integrated services for HIV and TB in the rural Zambezia province
  • Comprehensive approaches to women’s health challenges in the capital city
  • Capacity building and civil society outreach accompanied by expanded health service access
The Center’s previous congressional staff delegation tour of HIV and TB programs in Tanzania is described in Redeployment: Opportunities to control HIV and TB in Tanzania.
